Less than 14 hours after beating the Red Sox in 13 innings last night, the Orioles return to Fenway Park to face the Red Sox for an afternoon matinee. Jason Hammel, who has gone at least six innings in four of his five starts this season, will start for the Orioles. That should help an Orioles bullpen that threw eight shutout innings. Five different relievers threw on Friday, including three who threw multiple innings. “They were all pretty short last night,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of the bullpen.

Frank Fried was born a few months before the Orioles won their last World Series, so the 31-year-old mechanical engineer's memories of his favorite baseball team are mostly painful. Like many fans, Fried believes that the drought will end this month, a result that would not only thrill the city but also boost the local economy. A partial season-ticket holder, Fried will be at Camden Yards for Thursday's Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers, as he was nearly three dozen times during a regular season when the Orioles were one of the best teams in baseball.

All-Star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was in Boston on Saturday to take a physical exam needed to complete a trade from the Padres to the Red Sox, two people familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. Gonzalez had surgery on his non-throwing right shoulder on Oct. 20. The Padres said then that Gonzalez was expected to be ready for spring training. The Padres will receive three top prospects — right-hander Casey Kelly, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and outfielder Reymond Fuentes — plus a player to be determined.

The Orioles' regular-season home finale Sunday afternoon ended with a whimper, a 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. But they'll be back. For just the second time in Camden Yards' 23-season history, the Orioles ended their home schedule knowing for sure that they would return for a playoff game. Only in 1997 - the other time they were American League East division champions while playing at Camden Yards - did they know that the last regularly scheduled game in Baltimore wasn't their final one for the year.

Players must adjust Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun It's too early to tell. Bobby Valentine certainly has the experience, and he convinced ownership he's the guy. Now he needs to work on the players. They clearly preferred the country-club atmosphere under Terry Francona. But after the late-season collapse and missing the playoffs last year, the players lost their country-club membership. Thanks to their pitiful performance and clubhouse shenanigans, someone had to go. What second baseman Dustin Pedroia said after Valentine criticized Kevin Youkilis was stunning: "I really don't know what Bobby's trying to do, but that's not the way we go about our stuff around here.

How it happened: The Orioles appeared to be in trouble when the Red Sox took a 4-1 lead in the top of the fourth. The offense came alive in the bottom of the fifth, however, exploding for six runs, the most the Orioles have scored in an inning this season. Ty Wigginton started the fireworks with a one-out solo homer. Rhyne Hughes singled and Nolan Reimold walked before Cesar Izturis hit into a fielder's choice, advancing Hughes to third. Adam Jones drove in Hughes with a lightly hit infield single, and Nick Markakis knocked in Izturis with a single to center field.

Pro wrestling legend Ric Flair was at Fenway Park on Tuesday night to meet with Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox . Our Dan Connolly reported that a couple of Orioles players got a kick out of meeting him , too. The play did not pay off for Boston, though, as "the Nature Boy" was unable to "WOOO!" the Red Sox past the feisty Orioles . However, Flair delivered when he emphatically introduced the Red Sox on NESN before the game (while holding a championship belt, of course)

In case you missed it, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz and O's closer Kevin Gregg got into it this weekend and fists started flying.  Here's how O's beat reporter Jeff Zrebiec described the scene:  Ortiz charged Gregg in the bottom of the eighth inning after the Orioles pitcher yelled at him as he jogged to first base. Ortiz took umbrage to Gregg throwing three straight pitches inside, while Gregg didn't appreciate the fact that Ortiz had walked toward the mound a pitch earlier, and then swung at a 3-0 pitch in a seven-run game.

The Orioles had a hand in the collapse of the Red Sox, taking five games from the playoff pretenders last month. But fried chicken, beer and video games played a bigger role, according to an interesting Boston Globe report. Bob Hohler of The Globe reported that Boston's top starters, Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and John Lackey, have a habit of pigging out and chillaxing in the clubhouse during home games, even critical ones in September. “The indifference of Beckett, Lester, and Lackey in a time of crisis can be seen in what team sources say became their habit of drinking beer, eating fast-food fried chicken, and playing video games in the clubhouse during games while their teammates tried to salvage a once-promising season,” Hohler wrote in a Wednesday report.

After the Orioles' 7-2 victory Saturday night over the Boston Red Sox, manager Buck Showalter was preparing himself for a postgame discussion with Adam Jones, whom he was considering sitting for Sunday's regular-season home finale. It would be a short turnaround for an afternoon game, but these kind of discussions are delicate for Showalter. Jones, the club's All-Star center fielder, wants to play every day, and usually does, ignoring the nagging bumps and bruises of a long season.

The starting lineup the Orioles fielded Friday night against the Boston Red Sox was one more likely to be seen in March than September. But with the American League East already wrapped up, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said the club will choose its spots to rest key starters. The club's batting order Friday included just two players, right fielder Steve Pearce and shortstop Ryan Flaherty, who were with the club last August. It was missing six starters from the its Opening Day lineup.

Not long ago, it was suggested by more than one sportswriter that the Baltimore Orioles would never again win the American League East. Not merely because they were bad (although during the post-1997 cellar-dwelling years, they certainly were) but because the checkbook-advantaged franchises in New York and Boston had too great an advantage in the age of free agency. So that raucous celebration by players and fans alike Tuesday evening at Camden Yards after the Orioles clinched the division with an 8-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was understandable and well-deserved.

BOSTON -- Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen once fell four outs away from throwing a perfect game while he was pitching in Japan, so it's not like Wednesday's brief flirtation with baseball history in the Orioles' 10-6 win at Fenway Park was unchartered territory. “It comes across your mind, but still a perfect game is very difficult to do,” Chen said through an interpreter after his perfect-game attempt was broken up with one out in the sixth. “I just tried to concentrate on each at-bat.

BOSTON -- One of the criticisms of the Orioles this season is that they have trouble scoring consistently when they are not hitting home runs. And that trend may catch up with them in the postseason when they'll be facing quality pitching every night. For now, though, this homer-happy bunch continues to embrace who they are: Baseball's most powerful club and, consequently, the runaway leader in the American League East. On Tuesday, the Orioles flexed their muscles again, hitting three home runs, including two by newcomer Alejandro De Aza, in a 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox in front of an announced 37,008 at Fenway Park.

BOSTON -- When told that his players, for the most part, deny doing much scoreboard-watching this month, Orioles manager Buck Showalter joked: “You bought that?” But Showalter said he has been impressed with the way his team has been dealing with its large divisional lead in September - which is a new experience for nearly every player in the Orioles' clubhouse. “I think they're handling it very maturely from a standpoint where we've got to take care of our business,' Showalter said.

BOSTON -- Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is continuing to show he deserves a postseason start while his team has seized its biggest lead in the American League East in 35 years. Yes, 35 years -- before any member of the Orioles' current active roster was born. With their 4-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night, the Orioles (84-59) have taken a 10-game divisional lead for the first time since Sept. 22, 1979, a season in which the Orioles lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in a seven-game World Series.

Nobody asked me, but… A judge who orders an electric shock to silence a criminal defendant who refuses to shut up during a court proceeding has relinquished his eligibility for retirement duty on the bench. This is alleged to have happened when Charles County Circuit Judge Robert C. Nalley, who hit mandatory retirement a year ago, told a deputy sheriff to zap a chatterbox defendant with the "stun cuff" he was wearing at the time. (A few years ago, the same judge admitted to a Southern Maryland newspaper that he had deflated a tire of a car parked near the courthouse in La Plata.
